Whew! Loved this bottle. Loads of green apple, lemon & sea salt. Waves of acidity, with an exceptionally long finish. Paired with potato & leek soup with all the fixins

I agree with many of the reviews I’ve read on CT which suggest this wine, this vintage, is young and tightly wound at this stage, but potentially has the goods to be great. This is very lean, very mean, barely yielding some green apple and fresh lemon, some lemon curd with whipped cream. High acid, tense, with the cream coming in mid-palate hopefully hinting at the direction to come...I’d love to see this relax and unfurl a bit. Holding for a couple years!

Lean and focused like an extra brut Champagne. Seasprayed green orchard. A-R vineyard notes say the fruit has to work v hard to ripen here but it tastes better for it.

Great vintage for this wine. The style is creamier and more forward than in some other vintages but in a good way. Increases drinkability while keeping enough of the cut & nerve that are signatures of this wine

Old world style. Flinty and laser sharp acidity. Light citrus and floral. Gorgeous! Still very young.
